Even worse is that i havnt had any time to make which is so frustrating. I am expecting it to be at least a month before I shall be in a position to be creating again.
I am at least hoping that I will have time to surf the net for interesting stuff to inspire me and all being well I shall post to this blog.

The U.S. National Entomological Collection ranks as the second largest insect collection in the world with approximately 35 million specimens including over 100,000 holotypes plus hundreds of thousands of additional paratypes and other secondary types.
I rather liked the idea of the Butterflies having names that related to the landscapes that they have been formed from.This one has a place name of Old bess which I think is a lovely name for a Butterfly although i am not sure that butterflies really can be old.I think of them being ephemeral rather like the paper that this one has been made of.
Old Bess though is as `old as the hills`!!!
I had a thought that maybe i could make a display of them rather like a victorian collection in a cabinet,using map pins to hold them down.
Since i have had so many ideas fluttering around my head recently this is what I decided to do. The practice is good and I am not really all that great at origami but I love doing it and as they say practice makes perfect.
Not sure what i shall do with them at the moment.
